What would I give to see his face?
I’d give I’d give my life of course
But that is not enough!
Stop just a minute let me think!
I’d give my biggest Bobolink!
That makes two Him and Life!
You know who “June” is
I’d give her
Roses a day from Zanzibar
And Lily tubes like Wells
Bees by the furlong
Straits of Blue
Navies of Butterflies sailed thro’
And dappled Cowslip Dells
Then I have “shares” in Primrose “Banks”
Daffodil Dowries spicy “Stocks”
Dominions broad as Dew
Bags of Doublons adventurous Bees
Brought me from firmamental seas
And Purple from Peru
Now have I bought it
Sign me the Bond!
“I vow to pay
To Her who pledges this
One hour of her Sovereign’s face”!
My Kingdom’s worth of Bliss!
